Event Update For 2020-06-01


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2020-06-01 - Boatyard erupts in flame, fire gets huge, in coastal Wadebridge (Britain):

Quote: "Emergency crews in Cornwall are tackling a large fire at a boat yard in Wadebridge. Cornwall Fire and Rescue said the fire broke out at the site near the A39 at about 3pm on Monday. Crews from Wadebridge and Bodmin have been dealing with the fire, which caused smoke seen from miles around."

2020-06-01 - Vehicle fire ignites brush fire and causes evacuation near Hensley Lake in Madera County (California):

Quote: "The wind-driven grass fire started from a burning vehicle."

2020-06-01 - Hybrid ticks spreading and biting thousands of people across Siberia (Russia):

Quote: "A 'large number inter-species hybrids' which produce 'fertile offspring' have invaded Novosibirsk and Tomsk regions, said Dr Nina Tikhunova, of the Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine, Novosibirsk. This mutant 'is capable of carrying infectious agents associated with both parent species'."

Note: This sounds like a consequence of global warming. Russia just had its warmest winter ever. It was 86F in Siberia just a week or two ago. Normally the intensely cold winters in Siberia would keep insect populations in check, but with the rising warmth it looks like at least ticks are flourishing. There've been other tick-related stories in the past year or so too. Some cows were found in the US drained of blood and swarming with ticks, sparking fears that humans might be next on the menu. Ticks have been spreading up into Canada along the US Northeast and killing moose. And mutant super ticks that reproduce via parthenogenesis and only need one tick to hatch a brood are spreading across the US. The world is getting much more hostile for human beings, but it looks like ticks are enjoying the way things are going!

2020-06-01 - Man, 37, found eating his grandmother on Club Court in coastal Richmond (California), 3300 feet from the ocean:

Quote: "Richmond man was arrested this week on suspicion of murder and was reportedly found attempting to eat the victim's body when law enforcement officers arrived, a police spokesman said Tuesday. Police received a report around 2:10 p.m. Monday of a woman on the ground bleeding and a man standing near her at a residence on the 1200 block of Club Court, according to Richmond police spokesman Sgt. Aaron Pomeroy. Officers arrived at the residence to find 37-year-old Dwayne Wallick standing over 90-year-old Ruby Wallick, his grandmother, and digging in her flesh."

Quote: "Stunned officers found 37-year-old Dwayne Wallick standing over 90-year-old Ruby Wallick, his grandmother, digging into her flesh and attempting to eat the remains. Wallick was ordered to stop, but he ignored the officers and continued what he was doing, police said."

Note: Very similar to the original face-eater incident on the coast in Florida. A man's car broke down on the MacArthur Causeway. He got out, started walking down the causeway, stripping naked as he went. Then he came upon a homeless guy and attacked him, biting his face and gouging out both of his eyes. Cops arrived and found him munching on the poor homeless guy's face and they told him to stop. He growled at them then continued eating the homeless guy's face, so they shot him. That didn't stop him, so they shot him five more times and that finally killed him. No drugs were found in his system. He went from being a normal guy who had his car break down to a ravening naked face-eating lunatic with superhuman durability in about 15 minutes...

  2. Severe Cyclonic Storm "Nisarga" makes historic landfall close to Mumbai, India

    Severe Cyclonic Storm "Nisarga" made historic landfall over Maharashtra, India just south of Alibagh at 07:30 UTC on June 3, 2020, with maximum sustained wind speeds up to 110 km/h (70 mph) and gusts to 120 km/h (75 mph). The landfall process will be completed during the next three hours. After the landfall, Nisarga is very likely to maintain its Cyclonic Storm intensity for about 6 hours, while moving north-northeastwards across north Madhya Maharashtra.

    Storm surge of about 1 - 2 m (3.3 - 6.6 feet) above astronomical tide is very likely to inundate low lying areas of Mumbai, Thane and Raigad districts and 0.5 - 1 m (1.6 - 3.3 feet) above the astronomical tide likely to inundate low lying areas of Ratnagiri district during the time of landfall.

    Nisarga's center passed very close to Mumbai, a megacity and India's commercial center with a population of 18 million, rarely impacted by tropical cyclones. In addition, this is its first time in recorded history to be struck by a tropical cyclone during the month of June. [more]

  6. Hope everyone is surviving ok with everything that's going on. Weird thunderstorm here near Toronto last night. Non stop lightning. The thunder was a solid rumble for about an hr and none of the lightning I saw hit the ground. I've never seen a storm like it.

    I know what yer thinkin'..."it's aboot time someone from Canada posted eh'."
    There are alot of different accents here though. I sometimes accidentally imitate them at the drive thru. Last time I heard an asian woman on the mic so I started complaining about the big SUV in front of me. I said "rook at heeem, he sooo fat he brock a whole rane." I was lucky she had a sense of humour although I did apologize to get my order after using the accent once more to show her that I was the same guy because I saw a very confused look on her face when I pulled up. "Xi Jin Ping rook rike rinney poo." ...in for a penny in for a pound. I figured she'd either laugh or kill me with a kitchen utensil. Apparently the guy in the SUV WAS very fat and a bit rude so she found it hilarious.

    I drove across the MacArthur causeway when I was headed to the boat show a couple years ago...it smelled like rancid festering turd at times. I think the incidents there were definitely JJFH. I feel fortunate that I didn't end up in your zombie files.

    I'll post on anything that happens here that might support Johnny's hypothesis that he doesn't post. Thanks for keepin' us up to date and to everyone who comments. Much more relevant than watching the news. Cheers to survivin' another day!
